Apple Chocolate Chip Cake

This was one of the last things I made with Rachel/Jaclyn during my trip down to socal. :O It was also what was responsible for their mom breaking her diet, which makes me feel horribly guilty. ;_; (She’s been on a 750 cal/day diet since August of last year, when she had heart surgery.) I wholeheartedly believe that she has more willpower than most people I will ever meet.

I don’t quite recall all the ingredients, but if you get the boxes of cinnamon swirl quick bread (pictured later), the side panel with the recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake is the one to follow (for the cake portion).

Apple Chocolate Chip Cake

-2 boxes of Pillsbury Quick Bread Cinnamon Swirl Mix
-chocolate chips
-8 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
-2 eggs
-1 1/3 cups milk or water

1) Preheat oven to 375. Follow the instructions on the box to make the batter. (Mix dry with wet ingredients.)
2) Distribute half the batter evenly into baking pan. Layer apple slices (slightly overlapping) and scatter some chocolate chips on top.
3) Distribute the rest of the batter over the top. Add cinnamon topping, another layer of apple slices, and chocolate chips.
4) Bake for ~1 hour, or until it passes the toothpick test.
